If you’ve been on planet earth for the past 2 months, you should know that all everyone has been talking about is “The Showdown!” What’s “The Showdown” you ask?? Kanye West and 50 Cent of course! “Graduation” and “Curtis” both released online and in stores today, so if you haven’t done so already … COP GRADUATION! We all know Kanye West is a spaz, but I still pick him over shitty cent any day. I’m hearing that Kanye West is expected to sell close to (or over) 700,000 units this week, while 50 Cent is only expected to sell 500,000. Either way … that’s a lot of damn albums! Especially in a declining market. But the funny thing about those numbers is that I ALSO hear that Kenny Chesney is expected to cell even more than fiddy! Now THAT would be funny. I’d retire not ’cause I got beat by Kanye, but because I got beat by a Country singer!!! Anyhow, the numbers above are ONLY PREDICTIONS! Don’t be surprised if the real numbers don’t come out anywhere near the ones above. The only real way to know is next Wednesday when the chart results are in.
